In December, 2014, I was contacted by a company called Software Advice bringing my attention to an article by one of their writers, Gaby Loria, entitled, “Patient Home Usage of Speech Therapy Software IndustryView l 2014.” I thought I would share some of the online survey’s results with you.

The Key Findings:

  • Three-quarters (74%) of speech therapy patients have used or are using software to practice at home.
  • The majority (89%) of patients that used software for home practice noticed improvements.
  • Most respondents were more likely to choose a therapist-recommended at-home practice solution.

Other interesting findings were:

  • 61% of adult patients felt they improved using speech therapy software
  • 31% of parents of children reported that their child improved using speech therapy software. 
  • Speech therapy software was not a favorite for doing work at home. It seems that clients prefer verbal exercises to all methods. Physical tools, such as “listening tubes,” were the least favorite.
